Inequitable Impounds Bill (AB 1993) passes the California State Assembly

Good News — the California State Assembly, by a vote of 46 -24, just passed the Inequitable Impounds Bill (AB 1993).

AB 1993 (Ma) Inequitable Impounds, will allow local governments to impound a car for less than 30 days for certain traffic infractions where the offense involves a person who has never been driven a driver’s license.

AB 1993 would end the unfair and unnecessary car impoundment policies which are resulting in severe financial hardship for low-income individuals and families in California.

This bill will prevent car impoundments by allowing unlicensed drivers “reasonable time” to call a licensed driver to show up at the scene and drive the vehicle away.
